The number 62 has been a symbol for us all year. Each minute, 62 children enter a Children's Miracle Network hospital for treatment. 62 inspired our goal for push day where we pushed ourselves to raise $62,000 in just one day. The number is our inspiration for our year-long goal of #620ThousandStories. At the end of this year-long movement, we will find out if we were able to raise $620,000 FTK, but every day until then, we have to keep fundraising. With a new pledge minimum of $200, we compiled a list of ideas for fundraising when you think your tradition methods have been worn out. To keep a theme, we came up with 62 different ways to raise $200 before March 2nd.
